Christmas Stocking Advent Calendar
HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS BLOG HOP
This project has been so fun! I've wanted to do this for many years, but have never had an excuse to make an advent calendar. When we were in Germany last November, we spent several days at the Christmas Markets, and they had so many advent calendars to choose from. There were advent calendars in of any Christmas shape you could think of, hanging in all the stores in so many different ways. So, this was my inspiration! Christmas stocking is my shape.
I used 24 different Robin's Nest papers or cardstock sheets, so each stocking is a different paper, I will list these at the bottom of this post, I also wanted the stockings to be in red and brown tones. So as a result, I didn't just use Christmas papers, I used any paper in those colors. I added Dew drops, Tear drops, and Diamond drops to the stockings for the incredible look they have. Such a cute project, and quite easy to make. The most time consuming part of the project was sewing each stocking together, but to save time glueing would work also. The dew drops are adhered with Helmar glue. which we love for sure. At the top of each stocking is the number and next to the stocking is holly created with 3 red mini dew drops and 2 green diamond drops. Each stocking is decorated with dew drops and has its own design.
I love the look of the holly berries and leaves made out of dew drops and diamond drops.
Hanging against the brown wall is so nice. I hung the stocking with 2 ribbons, a 2" brown and red stripe, and a 1" red sheet ribbon with a gold edge. Then I tied each stocking to the swag with natural twine. The top of each stocking has a red glitter ribbon loop to tie the twine to.
Up close and pretty, each stocking is decorated differently.
Pointsetta flower is easy to create using 6 tear drops and a yellow mini dew drop for the center. Green diamond drops for the leaves. So cute!
Numbers were cut from the cricut, the oval punch shape behind the number is McGill pumch.
Dew drops in swirl shapes are easy to create with the glue bottle, draw with the bottle tip and slide the dew drops on the glue line.
Love the animal prints with the Christmas reds. So cute.
Here are scans of the stockings up close.
